I'm in line at the post office today. As I walk up to the doors I see a woman who is OBVIOUSLY not handicapped, NO handicapped plate, NO handicapped hanger. She started to walk in. I felt the need to remind her that she did not put her hanger in the window - and police were ticketing for that heavily this time of year. She glared at me and said "I ain't (don't you love the grammar) no cripple, (gotta love the education) why I need (no preposition?) a sticker?" I said -"You're parked in a handicapped spot." she said "So." and went in the post office. I pretended to take her picture with my phone - and she got out of line - went out, moved her car - and just kept on going. Here in SC if you take a picture of someones car in a handicapped spot that can't prove they are? You get a ticket, have to go to court, and get a fine and community service. We DO have the sticker - but rarely use it. As I'm going into the post office ANOTHER person pulls in the spot ALSO without a sticker...I stood there looking - they backed out and parked elsewhere. But not in time for an elderly couple WITH handicapped tags. So they parked across the lot. It's a bit of a walk to the front door, and then inside to the post office. So here comes this elderly man and woman trunk open with BOXES - nice sized, heavy looking boxes FOR OUR MEN AND WOMEN IN MILITARY - and NOT ONE person held the door for this man. There are MEN behind me -no one moved. So I stepped out of line - told the man behind me - HOLD MY SPOT I"M GOING TO HELP THIS GENTLEMAN...and helped him get the boxes IN and....INTO the post office. His wife - guessing 84 or more held the door. The line did move up - I went back to my place in line. No big deal. A man behind the man that was behind me made a comment about ME cutting in line. So I explained to him that I was just in line, stepped out to help this fella and his wife carry in these 20lb a piece boxes for the men and women in the military and he said "So - you got out of line." The man behind me was sending in an application to Food Lion for a management position - and had used a post office envelope. He stood in line for a while and then pretended like he FORGOT something - left and drove off. WITH the envelope. Okay - so you're too poor to buy an envelope to mail an application - that you filled out for a managers job - and you stole the envelope? Ugh. When he got out of line that put me and MR. CRAB next to each other, but that wasn't the best part. Another woman was actually standing in line SHOVING birthday gifts in a box and begging the postal worker for some tape to shut her box and THEN kept the rest of us waiting WHILE she filled out the forms - in triplicate and finished taping her box. And the elderly man whom I helped? NEVER said thanks - not nothing - nor his wife. Just like I didn't exist. So I gotta ask - WHAT is wrong with people? Are we all so unthankful? And as I left - the parking spot with the handicapped sign? Was occupied by an obvious teenagers car who wasn't even AT the post office - she was walking into the nail salon as I was getting into my car. I guess I'm just fed up - needed to get this out. I think I'm going to print some flyers (small ones) to put onthe windshields of cars that park in Handicapped spots....must work on the wording/verbage - but it's coming.
